Starbucks Is About To Test Curbside Pick-up In Canada

Starbucks Canada is accelerating the transformation of its stores with the launch of Curbside Pickup. The company will begin testing in 10 stores in Ontario cities starting July 9 and will add 20 additional test locations through the summer. Starbucks Curbside Pickup enables customers to be served in a safe and convenient way that respects physical distancing while maintaining the welcoming third place feeling of personal, human connection.

How it works:

  • Powered by the Starbucks App, Starbucks new Curbside Pickup service lets customers order ahead and choose Curbside Pickup if applicable to their store.
  • Upon arrival, the customer can park in a designated curbside parking spot and check-in using the app.
  • The store will then be notified of the customer’s arrival and a barista will gather their order and deliver it to the customer’s car.

Curbside Pickup joins a number of Starbucks other convenience formats: drive-thru, mobile orderinggrab-and-go, and Starbucks® Delivers with Uber Eats.
